Why I Love God Challenge
Last year today, a beautiful sister in Christ, who loves hard and loves with her all, nominated me to #WhyILoveGodChallenge. Thank you, my friend! I became a little emotional thinking about why I love God. Overcome with stuff. Flooded with emotions.
I can’t even lie about it or make a joke or be a little sarcastic.
He’s GOD. The Lord God. The King Of Kings. The Creator. The One And Only God.
I’ve known of Him since childhood. I’ve had no excuse for the myriad ways that I’ve shamed His name, disappointed Him, not stood up for Him, not acknowledged Him, did things to test His boundaries, His patience, His love- and that’s what I did in public. (Not sharing- not a soap opera) Regardless of my temper tantrums, mood swings, silent treatments, forgotten spells, and one-sided love relationship status, and that’s probably last week. (Okay, a little humor, I’m me – Stormy Faye! God made me with personality, bless Him and me ;)!)
He has not discarded me. He has not turned His back on me. He has not forgotten my name when I call out to Him. He has not called The Holy Spirit off the job because he’s still with me, pushing me back into spiritual boundaries, even when I fight them. He has not recalled Jesus Christ from my personal salvation. He still has plans and a purpose for me. And it’s good. I’m gonna taste and see. And spread the good news (the gospel) to all who care to join me because a god like this- this God is Why I Love God!!!
Now I’m nominating you to share with me why you love God. So let me know and hashtag #WhyILoveGodChallenge.
